TARGIT Decision Suite

TARGIT is a privately held Denmark-based BI software company that launched its flagship Decision Suite product in 1996. With more than 5,000 customers across the world, TARGIT is ideal for mid-size companies seeking a one-size-fits-all BI platform.

TARGIT Decision Suite is its core business intelligence and analytics software solution. It primarily covers reporting, dashboarding and analysis but also has data discovery and analytics capabilities.

It is built on a single, tightly integrated platform. To speed up processing, the vendor includes its XBone in-memory processing capability. TARGIT recently rolled out a comprehensive mobile BI offering, as well as tools to support the processing of data from the Internet of Things.

The vendor’s philosophy is to provide an integrated, easy-to-administer BI product rather than build a BI environment from a diverse set of tools and databases. The solution has plenty of advantages, especially for Microsoft Dynamics customers. In particular, the platform comes with prebuilt connectors and solution accelerators for all versions of Microsoft Dynamics.

User & Use Cases

TARGIT’s demographics clearly show the strengths of the platform: it offers integrated broad functionality for standard reporting, basic data analysis, dashboards and ad hoc query.

The product is often used to create pre-defined interactive applications, which are typically used in operational use cases in mid-sized companies. The company introduced data discovery and self-service BI capabilities a few releases ago. However, this functionality is still young so the vendor has yet to convince more customers to model and enrich data.

TARGIT is often used in companies where Microsoft is the strategic provider of the ERP and database systems. Therefore it is not surprising to see Microsoft among its competitors.
